He hasn't earned a big payday based on his NHL performance. Yes, he has a ton of potential ... but he's failed to reach it. His numbers lag behind both O'Reilly's and Wilson's at the NHL level. He put up 3 more goals than Spaling .... while getting almost a minute and a half of PP TOI per game . Legwand's first two NHL seasons were better than Turris. Bergfors has done more as a NHLer.

That said, if Turris accepts that he still needs to earn a payday and is willing to take a much lower contract number for a shorter term to prove himself then he's worth the risk. If he wants $2-3mil per season ..... nope.
